We love talking about our maps! Here are some common questions that we've gotten about our products:
We use OpenStreetMaps to create the map grid, and then use some styling to color in the streets, land, and water. Once we pick a city, we try to put the downtown in the center, but are flexible depending on how the map grid/shoreline looks. Then, we use the map and put it on a poster in photoshop, where we add the city name. It's a lot of fun staring at cities from all over the world!
The posters are made from a museum quality matte paper, and Ultrachrome ink. The ink is rated to last over 100 years, and 200 years if properly framed and maintained. The matte paper is very thick and looks great. After printing, the posters are then rolled in issue paper and put in a cardboard tube to protect them while shipping. The pillows are made from polyester, and the phone cases from a protective plastic.
We want you to show off your city in a number of different ways! We have map posters, pillows, phone cases, and more! We're always adding new products, so if you don't see something listed, send us a message and we can chat.
All of our products are printed in the USA in Los Angeles, CA.
Generally, it's 3-5 days from the time you place your order to get through printing, packing, and shipping. Everything is made to order, so we appreciate your patience while we make a one of a kind print just for you. Sometimes, during busier seasons, it can take up to 7 days to process orders.
Because everything is printed to order, we cannot accept returns. If there is an issue with your order, we're happy to replace it at no additional cost.
We've got over 500 cities listed, but we know we're just scratching the surface. If you want a custom city, shoot us a message and we can talk about making your city.
Sure! We can turn the maps into any color or style, just let us know what color and city you're looking to have done and we can make it for you.
Of course! Our art makes a great gift for everyone, especially the person that has everything.
